Anger management is a type of treatment that helps you understand and gain control over your anger. Anger is a normal emotion that helps you convey the message that you’re upset or bothered by something.
However, how you express your anger may affect the type of message you’re sending. If you tend to explode when you’re upset, your reaction may overshadow your message. Or your anger may harm yourself or someone else.
Anger management helps you understand the source of your emotions and create strategies that help you convey the right message without causing harm.
Alpine Psychiatry is a progressive adult and child psychiatry practice that treats all types of psychiatric disorders, including those that cause severe angry outbursts.
Anyone struggling to control their anger may benefit from anger management at Alpine Psychiatry. The practice may include anger management when treating intermittent explosive disorder (IED) and mood disorders.
IED is a mental health condition characterized by explosive and aggressive angry outbursts that are out of proportion with the triggering situation. People with IED are easily frustrated and have a low tolerance for adversity.
It’s not uncommon for people with IED to have co-occurring conditions like attention-deficit/hyperactivity (ADHD) disorder or anxiety.
Mood disorders are mental health conditions that affect how a person thinks, feels, and behaves. There are many types of mood disorders.
Disruptive mood dysregulation disorder (DMDD) is a condition seen in children and adolescents that involves a predominantly irritable mood accompanied by angry outbursts that are disproportionate to the triggering event.
People with DMDD are often misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder and may have other co-occurring conditions like ADHD.
